When: Saturday, February 1 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Selling points: It’s not just old-school walk-ups currently for sale in Uptown.

A short walk from the Argyle CTA station, the home has dark bamboo flooring, brand new appliances, garage parking, and access to a private roof deck. These features, however, will cost you a bit more.
Asking price: $540,000
